Fire fighters on Sunday afternoon brought a blaze in the Kato Arodes-Drousia-Kritou Terra area of Paphos under control.

The fire broke out at some point in the morning among dry vegetation in a hard to reach place.

Four fire engines from the Paphos station in addition to one from the Game Fund and one from the Forestry Department worked to put it out.

Two planes of the Forestry Department and two helicopters chartered by the state also worked from the air to put out the flames.

The fire destroyed 2.5 hectares of wild plants and several trees.

Earlier in the day the Forestry Department had put out a red warning for fires.
